The Story of Dr. Wassell
Gary Cooper, Laraine Day & Dennis O'Keefe
A radio speech by President Franklin D Roosevelt inspired Cecil B. DeMille to make a movie about Dr Wassell, starring Gary Cooper.
Dr Wassell leaves his Arkansas practise for research in China where he finds a cure for plague and romance with Red Cross nurse played by Laraine Day. Misunderstandings separate them and send him to Java and a group of wounded American sailors whom he tends.
As the Japanese sweep through the East Indies during World War II, Dr. Wassell is determined to escape from Java with some crewmen of the cruiser Marblehead. Based on a true story of how Dr. Wassell saved a dozen or so wounded sailors who were left behind when able bodied men were evacuated to Australia.
